NEW YORK, NY — Workville, one of the top boutique coworking brands in New York City, today announced the opening of its new 60,000 square foot location at 315 West 35th Street in Midtown Manhattan. The new location marks Workville’s expansion from a coworking space provider catering to smaller teams and individuals to a full-service flexible office space solution for growing teams and companies in need of hybrid or satellite offices.
The new location is in close proximity to Penn Station, an area sometimes referred to as “Penn District” which has recently attracted major tech companies like Facebook. Newly renovated and designed with COVID-19 safety guidelines in mind, Workville will provide members with move-in-ready, full-floor office spaces that comfortably accommodate teams of 10 to 50 people. Workville will occupy the entire building, which is owned by the co-founders of the company, including New York City commercial real estate investors and operators Jacob Aini and Isaac Chetrit.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on New York City’s commercial real estate market, but Workville’s expansion comes as many companies plan a return to the office with a hybrid approach and search for spaces that enable them to support distributed teams. The full building expansion signals a growing shift in strategy as commercial landlords pivot to offer more flexible options. While the pandemic has negatively impacted revenue and demand for all coworking businesses, Workville has seen a significant uptick in activity during Q1 2021. In March, Workville’s tour requests reached its highest levels since the start of the pandemic as anticipation around vaccinations and a return to normal fueled a flurry of interest from small and large companies alike.
“Although the pandemic forced many of our members to work from home, we have been able to maintain our relationships with them and are grateful for the trust they have in us to smartly navigate the ever-changing coworking landscape. As a result, most companies plan on returning,” said Sue Bernstock, President of Workville. “We were already seeing demand for full-floor flex office space pre-pandemic, but demand has accelerated in recent months. Flex workspace options will be more important than ever when teams reunite, so we’re excited to add a larger flex workspace option to the Workville offering.”
Office leases are for a full-floor, each with new, state-of-the-art HVAC systems and wall-lined windows that open for fresh air—adding a sunny, spacious feel to the design. The floor plans feature a combination of open desk seating and private rooms for break-out spaces and executive offices. In addition, every client has access to the member’s lounge, located on the ground floor retail, and outdoor roof deck so members can work from different areas throughout the day. The 14-story-building offers floor plans as small as 1,100 square feet and as large as 5,000 square feet.
“One of the most rewarding parts of operating Workville is seeing the transformation of the companies that let us take part in their journey,” said DJ Dashti, co-founder and CEO of Workville. “As we expand our offerings with our new location, we look forward to welcoming existing and new clients and helping them grow in a safe, inviting environment that inspires creativity and productivity.”
Workville begins leasing for its new 35th Street location today. Members can choose a turn-key space or customize the floor based on their individual needs. With the ability to support individuals who need an office space as well as companies with dozens of employees, Workville’s flexible, customizable spaces and hands-on support have earned the coworking company 5-star ratings on Google and loyal members.
